Still on the ongoing investigation trailing the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins during the filming of Alec Baldwin’s movie ‘Rust’, it has been reported that the actor and film producer is not cooperating with investigators as he has refused to hand over his phone since he was ordered to three weeks ago.

Reacting to the allegations, Alec Baldwin in an Instagram video stated that any suggestion that he had been deliberately evasive with investigators was a lie.

He said, “They can’t just go through your phone and take your photos, or your love letters to your wife, or what have you, that is a process that takes time. But of course, we are going to comply 1,000% with all that.”

All of this is coming after law enforcement officials in New Mexico requested assistance from authorities in New York in their efforts to retrieve the phone, as they were looking for any texts, images, videos or calls related to the movie production.

The District Attorney, who has been overseeing the investigation further stated that her office is working with the New York Sheriff’s Department and Baldwin’s lawyers to obtain any materials from Mr. Baldwin’s phone that pertains to the Rust investigation.

If you would recall, Haylna Hutchins, a cinematographer, was shot when Alec Baldwin was rehearsing drawing a prop gun while filming the movie Rust.

He has since insisted he didn’t pull the trigger, however, a lawsuit against the actor alleges that the film script did not require him to fire a gun when he fatally shot the cinematographer.
